Hello, Hello Strangers! Long time no talk. I believe I owe some sort of an explanation for that. Things have been a little hectic lately, especially this beautiful, rainy month of May, because of a few separate factors. It seems as though things have been snowballing a bit, but we’ll be out of the woods soon I think. We’re moving in a couple weeks; not too far away but it’s still a hassle as I’m sure most of you know. We’re moving to the Logan Square Neighborhood, which is just a bit Northwest from where we are now.
On top of that, I’m making all of the desserts for my cousins wedding next weekend, which comes with its own stress. Thankfully, I’ve tested each of the recipes and they are all delicious. What am I making, you ask? Well I’d love to tell you! Here’s the menu:
- Mini Cheesecakes topped with berries
- Chocolate Banana Cream Pie Tartlets
- Red Velvet Cupcakes
- Brownie Bites with Caramel (I actually found this recipe on Pinterest and it’s awesome, try it!!)
- Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Pretzels
I’m very excited to see the finished products and finally celebrate this lovely couple. They actually hosted me when I visited them in Seoul, South Korea and met Mike and I for dinner when we were in San Francisco, so it’s safe to say that I owe them one.
Travel has taken a back seat to everyday life this year so far, and that’s OK. I do miss it a lot, the thrill of discovering a new place, but other exciting things are happening instead. Exciting things like finally living in an apartment with a separate kitchen, and buying a couch that’s all ours and not a hand-me-down, and really enjoying my new job. That doesn’t mean I’ll stop writing here of course, but it may be a little slower (like 1 post a week instead of 2) for a bit, until I can save up a little to travel more again. We are planning on heading to Canada in the Fall, so I am very much looking forward to that.
In the meantime though, keep checking back here for new blogs, and you can also find me at A Strong Female Lead (a kick ass feminist blog) regularly too.
But what about you… What are your plans for the rest of May? Where are you traveling next? Tell me all about it.
